    I have been working at L'Oréal full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good benefits, lots of free products Holiday leave

    Cons

    Where to start... Very poor management, I had never seen so unprofessional managers (not fair, not knowledgeable, speaking to staff in extremely rude manners,...) Very childish environment, people spend their time gossiping Highly disorganised, seems like it is in the company DNA There is no culture of being good at your work and efficient it is all about showing your passion and staying endless hours at your desk and working all the time then you get promoted even if you are bad

    "A Good Brand from Outside But Bad Packaging inside (L’Oreal Singapore)"

    I worked at L'Oréal full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good Self-learning (Requires to know how to swim by yourself if you want to learn hard this is the place to learn and grow) Good Benefits, Quarterly Goods, Worksmart.

    Cons

    Bad Management that covers each other when they do wrong things. What you see, is not what it is. Never judge the book by its cover. Management are can able to take leave without applying on the system and drown the employee at work. Worksmart suppose to be once a week but was violated to take several times without people knowing. Management are able to watch drama and throw all the works to employee and credit themselves. Best is you can actually get your position if you have connection or ‘bribery’. Efforts will be credited to those who are not working. Is a good place for management level but bad place for employees. The turnover rate is super high that there is overlapping things not done or follow up by the previous employees. Guess how unhappy that the ex employee is. Most of all flavourism take place and drown the work to the unflavored ones which cost unstable feeling. Only good feedback are allow to show and hides the bad ones. If you could accept bad feedback there will be many who will willing to write over here. No one wants to leave for a good company but they leave because of bad managements. If you need to survive in L’Oreal you need to learn to be fake and be a ‘Yes’ man.
